Restless Shadeling (2, x, x)

Plagued Blood. Tail Sweep until Breezy Book dies. Use Plagued Blood when Helpful Spirit comes out. Death and Decay. Immediately bring in Maggot. You want to get Spirit down fast so he doesn’t whittle down Shadeling in the background with Arcane Explosion. Spam Chomp until the Maggot dies. Bring out Shadeling and finish off Moth with a few Arcane Blasts.
